Clipping Error discuss why Rise Of The Tomb Raider Will Be The Survival Game Of 2015, and what specific aspects of the game are going to make it better than the likes of Far Cry.
I think they're going to do a lot this round to try and differentiate it from Uncharted. IMO the reboot of Tomb Raider borrowed A LOT from Uncharted from the action scenes, to the score, to the general mechanics of the game (All games have borrowed from others in the past, not a bad thing). Will be interested to see what they come up with. Hoping it comes to the PS4.
It should come to PS4, its a timed exclusive.
I don't think so! Microsoft Studio is the publisher
@magic it is, here's a link. http://gamerant.com/rise-of...
Maybe Sony told Square when U4 was aiming for release, so not to step on each other they conned MS into paying for a timed release.
It says that it has a duration in that link, but it does not say "it will come to PS4." It could be a duration then it's released on PC, but not ps4. There is a lot that can be read into it
They never said it would come to the ps4 that it might not stay on Xbox. So that could simply mean a pc port. Phil Spencer said Microsoft is not going to pay for another consoles game. Wouldn't be surprised if it stayed console exclusive to Xbox. Either way for those who have never played the original TR on Sega Saturn or Ps1 pretty much every third person game has borrowed from TR. She was shooting and climbing and flipping 20 years ago.
@xxmagicmanx Microsoft probably secured temporary exclusivity in exchange for helping Square Enix develop the game. After the term of the agreement expires, Square Enix will probably resume unhindered ownership of Rise Of The Tomb Raider and they will be free to publish the game on other platforms. It works the same way with most deals of this nature. @falviousuk The reboot attempted to duplicate everything about Uncharted, including the multiplayer.
Sorry buddy, this is console exclusive. If anything it's timed as a PC port. Microsoft is running full marketing, retail for this game and development with full uitlization of it's hardware.
You do realise Tomb Raider came out years before Uncharted, so basically Uncharted is a copy of the Tomb Raider style of game.
not really.tomb raider 2013 copied gameplay elements from uncharted.It doesn't play like the old tomb rider games
There are similarities (mostly genre) but anyone that has played both can see the new Tomb Raider is much more akin to Uncharted than Uncharted is to the old TR games.
If we never had tomb raider we would never have had uncharted Edit: Don't know how anyone can disagree with that statement tbh, guess people here are too young to know where this genre started.
@Falviousuk lol have you played any of the old tomb raider games? It plays nothing like Uncharted. It might gotten influence from TR as an Action/Adventure game but gameplay style is completely different.
Nothing about the old Tomb Raider games and Uncharted are same apart from the fact they are both treasure hunters Uncharted is a cinematic third person action game with small puzzle elements Tomb Raider was a puzzle game with third person shooter elements. The reboot is basically wanting to be like Uncharted...they try way too hard.
@lemoncake actually if it wasn't for Gears of War, there would be no Uncharted. Sony wanted ND to make a game to compete with Gears.
I hate the " if there was no" argument. May as well say if there was no Jordan there would be no Kobe. nonsense.. inspiration always helps and the chain of inspiration is infinite. But inspiration isn't a creator. ..its the people who dedicated hard work, time, and sacrifice. They deserve the credit for their creation not the thing that inspired them to create it. -kingthrash
Tomb raider was a dead franchise when uncharted came about. Gameplay was much different from old tomb raiders. Just because there both raiding temples doesnt mean there the same. The new tomb raider took a ton of gameplay elements from uncharted which actually made for a great tomb raider for a change.
Ok and Uncharted borrowed from other games before it. So stop saying how everything being borrowed from Uncharted. To be honest Id go as far as saying Tomb Raider paved the way for games like Uncharted. So show some respect to Lara.
He said that all games have borrowed from others, that would include Uncharted. TR did a lot for 3rd person action adventure games, the last one retained very little of the original TR formula. Originally they had a lot of puzzles and less shooting. From a gameplay point of view Uncharted didn't have that many connections with old TR games while the last one was basically Uncharted with Lara Croft. It was still a good game and there is nothing wrong with borrowing ideas (see Shadow of Mordor), but in the end the last TR was more Uncharted than TR.
It will. May actually sell more on the PS4. It will be interesting to see how MS handles the U4 launch. Head to head? Will it delay if U4 does? If Sony is smart they will try and put U4 head to head, so PS4 players buy U4 and the TR when it comes at a later date. Otherwise many that own both will buy for xbone. Anyway, I just want some real tombs. Uncharted has been so damn good at giving us amazing tombs and puzzles. Without copying again, TR needs to give us tombs, something new and original. And build on her humanity, giving us more difficult situations that require something other than a shotgun or ak.
it was coming to ps4 but then MS released info that they was helping publish the game,but its money and i expect once uncharted been released and out a while they will release on ps4 because they want money at end of day. i wont buy a xb1 for tomb raider.
It's going to in 2016. PS4 will have uncharted with a much better multiplayer and story
Actually ......... your quite wrong, Tomb Raider series has been out since the Sega Saturn and PS1 and Uncharted was HEAVILY based on the Tomb Raider series. And yes, all games as in music, movies etc... are based on other things. ALL. Never really stated form sure it's a timed exclusive. Only hinted at.
I enjoyed the reboot so much, it was a pleasant surprise and this seems to be a lot bigger and much more ambitious. Such a talented team. can't wait to see what they do with this title.day one for sure. Hopefully they'll do a Legacy of Kain:Soul Reaver reboot next.
I agree. I really enjoyed the last game and think that they are doing everything they can to make this one bigger and better. One part of the game that I hope they really improve is the multiplayer. The last game's multiplayer was terrible. I hope that they put enough resources into it to make me come back and play
To be honest,i never even bothered myself with the multiplayer mode. I went through the singleplayer twice though. It was really good. @Ger I think you are right, it doesn't need one but if they choose to add one then they could make it like tlou mp. I find myself going back to that a lot. Its fun.
It doesn't need multiplayer.
christoculus said it best it doesn't need multiplayer but that shouldn't stop you from wanting a great multiplayer experience. I just think the game has a lot of potential for multiplayer and that they should take advantage of it. Obviously I am going to play it regardless because of how great the single player is... but don't write off the potential multiplayer for a game just because the single player is the main aspect of the game. When I bought TLoU I didn't even think about multiplayer but I sunk hours and hours into it because it turned out really great
It's going to be a great game but there is no way it will be better than Uncharted.
Why not? Who knows until the two games are out. However I will say this. If Tombraider is even close to the quality of naughtydog games it will be an incredible experience.
@Pornflakes Because.... It's Naughty Dog.
I love Tomb Raider and I also love Uncharted. But the speed and fluidity isn't there for Tomb Raider as it is for Uncharted. It's exhilarating how Drake can be surrounded by enemies hucking grenades at him and quickly maneuver out of danger while taking a couple out, all the while being a smart ass about it. My opinion is not fact here obviously but it's one I have consistently held since playing the reboot. I can't wait for the TR sequel, I just don't think it's going to be better than Uncharted.
Its going to be based on personal opinion. The TR Reboot was rated higher than uncharted3 by many reviewers and i know die hard uncharted fans who prefered the reboot as well. The sequel will be same.both devs will improve upon their previous work but in the end the media&gamers will once again go with preference. Some will pick UC while others will go with TR. They are both very good games made by very talented studios.
"The TR Reboot was rated higher than uncharted3 by many reviewers" Uncharted3 has a Metacritic of 92 vs Tomb raider 87 but yeah its all opinion.
@dudebroki.. Try to understand my comment.i never said TR beat out UC based by review scores. i clearly stated that many reviewers gave TR a higher score.so bringing up meta.c doesn't change a thing. UC is a great franchise.I know cos i've played everyone of them. CD&ND are extremely talented and Both UC&TR are of similar genre and appeal to a very similar audience but in the end it will once again come down to personal preference.
@christocolus "The TR Reboot was rated higher than uncharted3 by many reviewers" "i never said TR beat out UC based by review scores." What does your definition of "rated higher" mean?
I wasn't aware Uncharted was a "Survival" adventure game.
You have to"survive" to make it through the game. ;)
Tomb Raider reboot wasn't neither
Uncharted will be a better movie, Tombraider will be a better game
I liked the tr reboot more than uc3. If cd is hungry enough, they can make a potentially better game. Also, I really liked the climbing, scavenging, and upgrade system in trr. If uc4 doesn't have similar mechanics, it'll risk being too samey with the other uc games.
Let me guess, because it's a xbox 1 timed exclusive?
I strongly doubt it will be better than uncharted 4... but I would strongly welcome any game that could meet or exceed that high level of quality...
It will be due to the nice healthy checkbook behind it and cause am buying it plus all DLC made for it . @ger2396 hopefully it becomes a permanent Xbox one .
"@ger2396 hopefully it becomes a permanent Xbox one ." I don't see what's wrong with it coming to other systems. :I If No Mans Sky came to the Xbox One I wouldn't complain about it. In my opinion there are many fans of Tombraider on PS4 that deserve to play it. Just like there are fans of Hello Games on rhd XB1 that deserve to play No Mans Sky.
LOVED the reboot, and as a huge fan of Uncharted it did feel very similar. I'm hoping they put a little more survival into this one, whether it be lower ammo, the need for food/supplies, stuff like that. However, with this, and I'm going to have to pick up a PS4 when Uncharted comes out, it's going to be a great year/two for the genre!!
Fortunately, I'll have the luxury of enjoying both R:TR & UC4... and I've no doubt they'll both be a total blast to play ;)
Do you know the reason it won't?... Uncharted 4.
They said the same about the first game in the reboot but it wasn't a survival game. I could of been but they wanted to make it like Uncharted. Example one out of many...Med Kit packs replaced with regen health....in a SURVIVAL GAME. Come on
Anybody who can make gun parts out of animal bones is a god-tier survivor in my book.....
The article only really talks about why Rise of a Tomb Raider will be great, but nothing in the way of how other games will compete. I loved the reboot, but Crystal Dynamics will be squaring off with the Naughty Dog team who brought us Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us. I imagine it won't be some easy victory.
I completely agree. Naughty Dog consistently makes masterful games. If TLOU taught us anything about ND it's that they are capable of competing in genres you wouldn't typically associate the studio with. Be it open world(Jak), adventure(Uncharted), and survival horror(TLOU) Naughty Dog proves why they are the best in the industry right now. I own both systems and am thoroughly excited to play both games, but Crystal Dynamics still has a lot to prove if they truly wish to compete with ND. For people that say there would be no Uncharted without Tomb Raider I'd call bull.I believe that Uncharted owes much much more to Indiana Jones. Hell even Nates new whip in UC4 just screams Indy. Until players are trying to contort the camera to check out Nates chest hair or ass crack then I find the similarities between UC and TR minimal at best.
Lol the only way Tomb Raider will be the survival game of the year is if Uncharted 4 ' s release date gets pushed to 2016. The Tomb Raider reboot was good but they can't compete with naughty dog.
A lot of people are falling for the title. It sayd "Survival adventure game." Uncharted isn't a survival adventure game.
Neither is Tomb Raider. In fact, it's quite obvious that title is only there to exclude Tomb Raider from the debate.
Now Tomb Rider 2013 discount 85% on Steam Other SQ game too
Articles like this always make me laugh, especially when reading some of the responses such as..... If we never had tomb raider we would never have had uncharted. Really? That makes no sense. OK.. So what game paved the way for Tomb Raider? And what game paved the way for the game that paved the way for Tomb Raider... This is something that can go on and on forever. Just because one game existed before another game doesn't mean that without that game the other one would never have been made. And the reason why Rise Of The Tomb Raider will be the survival adventure game of 2015 is...... because Microsoft paid people to say that.
I'm sure it will be a great game, I had a great time playing through the reboot however, Naughty Dog work is a different level. The only reason it's a time exclusive is because Xbox doesn't have Uncharted quality game to match it. In the end however, PlayStation owners will get to play both games when the time exclusivity comes to the end. I would love to see Microsoft invest into a new IP to compete with Uncharted however with their business model
theres no gaurentee that TR will release to PS4. PC yes but i dont see MS publishing a game and letting it go to PS4. So dont be so certain that ps4 owner will get to play this.
Say hello to Mass Effect and Ninja Gaiden. Both titles were published by MS and later released on Playstation consoles.
Unless the statement changed, it has been confirmed that next Tomb Raider will be one year timed exclusive. After that it will be released on the PS4.
Gears > UC Next excuse?
Personal opinion doesn't equal fact. And those two games aren't really comparable, aliens showing military style sci fi shooter isn't Uncharted or vise versa...
Lara is much more iconic than Drake and in my book Tomb Raider is a much more enjoyable experience, especially the reboot. Seeing how everything started for her just drew me much more closer to that character. This will be the game to rival uncharted and again TO ME will be a better game. Day 1 buy without a doubt and hoping for a collectors edition.
"Survival Adventure"? I feel like you slapped that title on there to exclude it from the AAA bloodbath of other, more exemplary titles. I don't consider Tomb Raider a "Survival adventure" game. It was more an Uncharted clone with RPG elements than anything else. Sure, the marketing had me excited for a survival-style Tomb Raider, and the beginning has a perfect start-off, but the game quickly devolves into set-piece driven, arena-shooting, arcady action all too quickly. Tomb Raider was "okay". From the try-hard Uncharted-style campaign that abandoned the survival focus, to the tacked-on deathmatch multiplayer that it didn't need, Tomb Raider was simply "okay". It's clear that either Square or Crystal were trying to cover all their bases by following the stereotypical AAA formula a little too closely. Tomb Raider was a disappointment. Nothing about the previous game has me losing any sleep over the series currently being an Xbox exclusive.
Cant wait to play the Definitive Edition on my Ps4 when the time exclusivity deal is over. It will be a nice companion to Uncharted 4.
I believe that Uncharted 4 will be the adventure game of the year. Naughty Dog always raise the bar with each game they develop. Tomb Raider may be good but Uncharted will be in a whole new level.
I don't think anyone is even taking into account that the Tomb Raider reboot wasn't as popular on the Xbox One as it was on the PS4. What are the reasons for that? The shooter platform? The multiplayer platform? The dude-bro sports-shooter-action-multipla yer-co op platform? I just hope that Rise Of The Tomb Raider performs well enough to continue as a franchise. If it doesn't, the only people who will lose out are the gamers who love this series.
